No I feel pretty good deadlifting, it is seemingly just random...

I was putting together a BBQ one day, was on my knees on a hard floor stooping etc and the next day was just crippled... it is so random I have no idea anymore...

Could also be tied to hydration.

I kid of thought that was the issue, was going to follow the Renegade diet but it just seems it would be too hard to fit in enough protein and calories at night like that...

Thanks brother

I am not educated enough on this topic to comment.

Personally I don't think it's anything to worry about unless you are using steroids and need to take in 300+ grams of protein per day.

How many sets per day? And how intense are the sets/ Are you pushing for progression or just doing lighter reps?

Hey, I'm having a problem with my bench press. When pressing up from my chest, my right elbow flares out. This even happens when lowering the weight on the bar to something like 40kg (I'm doing Starting Strength and my Bench is now at 66kg). Do you have any tips for me or should I post a video first?

That's way too much arm volume in my opinion.

Video would help.

Generally you're going to need to learn tightness...a tight setup, tighter grip on the bar, better back shelf.

Here is a good place to get started:
